KIERAN O’Hara was happy with how his teammates defended in yesterday’s 1-1 draw away at MK Dons and said that there is belief in the dressing room that they can turn their recent run of draws into wins.

O’Hara said: “We came here obviously wanting three points like we do every game.

“I thought we started really strong and played our attacking football the way we wanted to play.

“We created chances throughout the game, and I think the next step is to take them chances and to turn these draws in to wins.”

“All the boys are together and working hard in training every day. Four unbeaten is a good statistic, but we need to turn them into three points and the feeling is that it is coming.

Despite not managing to keep a clean sheet against The Dons, O’Hara was happy with how his side defended during the game and in recent games, something that manager Jake Buxton also praised after yesterday’s game. “You go through these times in football, said O’Hara.

“It’s been difficult trying to see games out and trying to keep clean sheets. As a goalkeeper it’s something that me and our defenders want to do.

“It’s a team effort and I think we’ve been working really well as a back five and you can see the improvements in recent weeks.

“Personally, I just want to help the team and perform to the best of my ability. I know that if I perform to the level that I am capable of then it will help the team no end and we can really start climbing the league.”

O’Hara is now looking forward to the busy schedule, which he says the manager has been preparing the players for in training.

“The manager was only saying yesterday in training that we’re going to need everyone and that the whole squad has got to be ready.

“It’s a packed schedule and we’re going to need everyone. We’re more than just an eleven, we’re a whole squad.

“We’re excited, we’re working hard and we believe in ourselves - we believe that the wins are coming.”
